Pacific Renaissance: The Legacy of Conscientious Objection during World War II

Curated by Liam Conley (’23) and Kathryn Kishinin (’23), this exhibition explores Lewis & Clark Special Collections’ archives of those who lived in the Civilian Public Service Camps in Oregon from 1942–1945. It explores their philosophies of pacifism, how they supported each other in their cause, and the art they produced while encamped.

Voices of Conscience Visits Watzek

The Kauffman Museum’s award winning traveling exhibition, Voices of Conscience, is visiting the Aubrey R. Watzek Library from late July until mid-September 2023.
The exhibit remembers the peace-minded people and the trials they suffered to avoid contributing to the violence of the First World War. Examining the experiences of men and women, political protesters, and sectarian separatists, the exhibit demonstrates that pacifists were denied of freedom of speech under the Espionage and Sedition Acts. For their resistance many suffered humiliation, federal imprisonment, and mob violence at the hands of a war-crusading American public.
